Johannesburg - Former president Jacob Zuma will attend a judicial inquiry into government graft during his tenure even though he believes it is prejudiced against him, his lawyer said.
The ANC forced Zuma to step down in February 2018 after years in office marked by a succession of scandals and economic decline.
Zuma had set up the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into State Capture himself the previous month on the orders of the public protector - a decision he made an unsuccessful High Court appeal against.
"He is going to the commission as invited" from July 15-19, Zuma's lawyer Daniel Mantsha said on Tuesday.
However, "our client remains of the view that the commission is prejudiced against him and lacks the requisite impartiality," Mantsha wrote separately in a letter to the inquiry seen by Reuters.
